Illinois’ finances have been the Madigan Machine’s personal piggy bank for nearly 50 years, and we’re seeing the impact – poor credit, billions in debt, high taxes.
State government is broken and dysfunctional. We need someone who can bring private sector accountability to the public sector. Luckily, I’ve already done it. My firsthand experience working with Fortune 500 companies has prepared me to put Illinois back on the right track. Years of corruption and lack of transparency have led us here, all thanks to the Madigan Machine. I am a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and have a demonstrated record of rooting out corruption, making government more transparent, and finding the waste, fraud and abuse Illinois is rife with.
I’ve made a reputation protecting taxpayer dollars, implementing paperless systems for greater efficiency and cost savings, and instituting processes ensuring taxpayer dollars are being spent for the good of taxpayers, not the personal benefit of political leaders and career politicians. I built my career rooting out the same kind of waste, fraud, and abuse that plagues Illinois. In the private sector and as a public servant, I have proven that I am the person Illinois needs to crush corruption when and where it starts.
